Green and Sustainable Finance/Economics in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals

The importance of green and sustainable finance/economics in achieving the SDGs cannot be overstated. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a critical global agenda for solving pressing environmental, social, and economic concerns, and their success needs novel ideas from various disciplines, including economics and finance. In recent years, the convergence of green and sustainable finance/economics has received much attention as a crucial strategy for achieving the SDGs. The journal "Cogent Economics and Finance" welcomes academics and researchers to submit unique, high-quality research articles for a special issue titled "Green and Sustainable Finance/Economics in Achieving SDGs."

The objectives of this Article Collection aims to provide a thorough and in-depth examination of the vital role that green and sustainable finance/economics plays in accomplishing the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs). We intend to dive into the complexities of how financial processes, economic regulations, and sustainable business practices connect with the Sustainable Development Goals. Thus, we aim to present a detailed perspective of how the financial and economic sectors may contribute to the global goal of sustainable development.

Another important objective of this Article Collection is to uncover the synergies and potential trade-offs that result from aligning economic and financial activity with the SDGs. While there is a growing awareness of the significance of sustainability in finance, it is crucial to note that particular methods may have both positive and negative effects on the SDGs. By analysing these possible synergies and trade-offs, we can offer policymakers, practitioners, and scholars invaluable insights on how to negotiate this complexity and optimize the beneficial contributions of finance and economics to the SDGs.

This Article Collection is intended to provide a forum for presenting best practices, innovative solutions, and successful case studies demonstrating the actual application of green and sustainable finance/economics in support of specific SDGs. By highlighting businesses, governments, and financial institutions that have successfully incorporated sustainable concepts into their strategy, we may encourage others to follow suit and speed up progress towards the SDGs.

The development of policy recommendations and guidelines will be a significant outcome of this special issue. We want to provide policymakers with evidence-based insights and practical suggestions at the local, national, and global levels. These ideas can guide the design and implementation of policies that promote sustainable finance, reinforce regulatory frameworks, and facilitate the financial and economic sectors' active contribution to the SDGs.

We acknowledge that solving the complex issues of sustainable development needs collaboration across disciplines. Through this Article Collection, we hope to encourage collaboration between economists, finance experts, environmental scientists, social researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders. We can enrich the discourse on green and sustainable finance/economics and contribute to a more holistic and integrated approach to attaining the SDGs by bringing together varied viewpoints.

We invite researchers and scholars to submit their original research papers, empirical studies, review articles, and case studies that contribute to the understanding of green and sustainable finance/economics in achieving the SDGs. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Sustainable finance mechanisms: Innovative financial instruments, green bonds, impact investing, and their role in financing SDG-aligned projects.
  2. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations in investment decisions and portfolio management.
  3. Climate finance: Policies, challenges, and opportunities for funding climate adaptation and mitigation initiatives.
  4. Sustainable business models: Examining successful models for incorporating sustainability into business strategies.
  5. Policy frameworks and regulatory initiatives promoting green and sustainable finance.
  6. Measuring and reporting on the impact of sustainable finance initiatives on SDGs.

Case studies illustrate the link between green finance/economics and specific SDGs.
